Workshop: Writing Your Own Al Chets

Wednesday, September 16, 2020 27 Elul 5780

7:45 PM - 9:00 PM

For the sin that we have sinned before You by relying on the introspection of others.

This workshop is for those who want to take advantage of the Jewish calendar’s invitation for cheshbon nefesh, a spiritual reckoning. The confessional litany is necessarily hit and miss because it was written hundreds of years ago by people other than us. This workshop is our opportunity to craft our own litany with the help of our tradition, our community, and some contemporary examples to stimulate our own thoughts. What do we need to work on, still? What do we need to work on, now? How can we leverage the most good out of our limited resources? How do we not fritter away this precious gift of life?How can we contribute to our children’s and grandchildren’s capacities to live long on the Land that the Lord, our God, has entrusted to us?

Only register if you’re ready to get real. This workshop demands looking at ourselves in the glare of unflattering light, just as our Rabbis did. Given the limitations of Zoom, we are capping registration at 24 screens. If there is sufficient demand, we will consider scheduling another workshop. 

This event is limited to 24 participants. Please use a new form for each registrant in your household.
